John Billingsley was also kino in it. Episodes that give him lots of screentime are always some of the better ones, and in the Mirror Universe he's some sadistic Dr. Mengele type who just loves cutting up and/or torturing aliens.

Scott Bakula hamming it up as the mirror universe captain Archer with William Shatner's shirt was the peak of the entire franchise

The highlights are the two episodes that actually have the good opening.

Enterprise was gay squared. Made SG-1 look like a gritty war documentary.
I made it about thirty seconds into Enterprise. As soon as I heard the first three lines of that shitty mom-style countrypop theme song I audibly said "what the fuck is this?" and turned it off.
I've watched the scenes of TPol wanting to fuck everyone and how the Klingons got weird skulls. I assume those were the highlights of the series.

It's not easy coming off as badass if you have silly antennae on your head, but man did he ever sell it.

Do they even need to? I feel like they could get most of the actors in the Kelvin reboot for a television show.
They've already recast Spock for his "I like science" cameo in Discovery, Kelvin Chekov's actor is fucking dead, and who knows if anyone else of the rest events wants to return for another round of Trek, let alone a long-running series.
Plus hiring the Kelvin actors would just confuse people as to what timeline this is supposed to be again.

(Plus newer, lesser known actors will probably be cheaper.)
No, I mean before Discovery happened. Kelvin Chekov isn't vital, as Chekov wasn't even introduced until one season into TOS. They could just continue the Kelvin timeline and not make a pointless prequel that then gives up and jumps ahead to the future.

I mean, what did we learn from the prequel side of it? That the Klingon-Federation war was nowhere near as interesting as one might have believed, and that Spock had a sister he'll never mention. Also that Harry Mudd existed 10 years before Kirk first met him. Wowsers.

Meanwhile, Enterprise showed us the evolution of the Human-Vulcan alliance, as well as the founding of the Federation, developing friendships with the Andorians and the Tellarites, a proper first contact with the Klingons. Sure, Enterprise did a bunch of silly shit, but all of the aforementioned was still there and not just that, it was built up over the course of several seasons. Hell, 99% of Andorian culture in the lore comes from Enterprise and Jeffrey Combs' performance.

And apparently that one is canon, as if having Picard wasn't betrayal enough.

At this point, I'm almost surprised they dont just do it as a cheap Cal Arts cartoon. And just skip the actors and sets thing entirely.
Thanks for reminding me that there is in fact a nu-trek CalArts cartoon.
I successfully forgot about it.

it still wouldn't be real Star Trek.
But it doesn't need to be a terrible show.
